A panel of judges from Washingtonian and the contest’s beneficiary, Wolf Trap Animal Rescue, will select one dog as the “Cutest Dog” titleholder. Reader votes will determine a “People’s Choice” winner. Both dogs will receive their winning page in our February print issue.

All entrants will be on display in a photo gallery on our website and will receive a personalized, digital faux Washingtonian “Cutest Dog” cover with the dog’s image and name. Voting will happen from November 26- December 2 and will close at 11:59 PM EST on December 2. 

Each submission is $30, with a portion of the proceeds to benefit Wolf Trap Animal Rescue. Multiple entries of the same dog are permitted, but entries cannot include the same photo. Visit the contest website for more details.
